    Front right burner won't ignite. I turn on the knob and the igniter clicks and there is a spark. When I remove the metal top, I notice white deposit around the silver cylinder. I don't seem to be able to remove it. Is this what's preventing the ignition? or is it something else?

Alien, one of your burner switches either got wet or shorted out. These switches are located on the burner valve itself. Sometimes you can take a hair dryer, pull the knobs of the control valve and dry out the switch. If this doesn't work, more than likley one of the switches gone bad. Catriver...post back.

Thanks Catriver. When I read your diagnosis and repair, I realized I just took a water-soaked cover off a pan of boiling water for iced tea, and set the dripping cover on the rack atop the burner.

When I read your solution, I ran back to my ticking cooktop, and noticed a large pool of water from the pan lid all around the burner knob. So I pulled the water away from the hole with a towel and dried the glass top.

Next, I snatched my daughter's hair dryer, ripped the knob off, and blasted hot air down into the hole at the burner switch. Ticking stopped in less than a minute.

Pilotless ignition


its the safety solenoid. thinks the gas is on, they have them fitted so if the gas is flowing and don't heat the switch it will keep sparking till it does. you will need a gas engineer to sort this out. as there is seals that if you dont put back on right you cancause a gas leak.

Gas cooktop never stop clicking 4 of them just keep starting without stop. I opened it and checked the wire, no problem.


Hi mikegou100,

I believe your ignition switches have come in to contact with either water or moisture.

Please read my below Tip on how to fix the problem:

If it does not solve your problem, I'd suggest replacing the ignition switches.

Kind Regards

Electronic igniters will not turn off when the gas burner lites. all four igniters run untill you turn off the nob or unplug the unit


I'm dealing with this same problem. This cooktop has a dedicated simmer burner which is the only thing going on the lowest setting. This simmer burner seems to be how the igniter senses that it can stop. If it doesn't light, the igniter keeps clicking. Usually cleaning the burner will solve this. You may need to unscrew the nut holding the lower piece of the burner in place in order to clean it up.
Good luck!

Kitchenaid gas ccoktop electronic ignition continues to click


We called in an appliance repair technician. He said during the cleaning process of the cooktop, when the control knobs had been removed to thoroughly clean the cooktop, some cleaning fluid or water or moisture got into the ignition switch panel under the cooktop. Letting it dry for 24 hours should fix the problem and this appears to have done that.
